ut of the window, was the man who supported the Duke when he vomited blood.

But why were you leaning against my room’s window?

Did someone say the enemy had attacked him?

“Please excuse me.
Are you still breathing?”

Fortunately, there appeared to be no injuries on the outside.

I pressed my finger gently against white haired man’s cheeks, thinking to wake him up.

His even breath touched my skin.

“Are you sleeping?”

This gave me a reasonable suspicion that the people here had a disease that caused them to fall asleep whenever they saw me.

While pondering what to do, my gaze was drawn to the man’s pure white hair.

The fluffy appearance reminded me of a white dog’s fur I once saw on the street.

It appeared to be soft.

It was pleasant to the touch.

It was when I came to the thought of wanting to touch his hair, similar to seeing a paw in a cat’s hand or a puppy’s chubby butt.

My hand was already brushing Suu’s hair.

It was soft.
It was just like cotton candy.

Suu was awoken from his sleep by the gentle touch.

His gaze was drawn to me as I stroked his hair.

I felt embarrassed.

I thought he would shake my hand off or get up right away, but Suu just stayed still and looked at me.

Like a puppy wagging its tail while lying comfortably in its owner’s hand.

In the end, it was on my side to withdraw my hand first.

“I was sleeping with my back to the window.
I fell inside your room because you opened the window.”

He stood up and nodded as if he realized what was going on.

Suu’s gaze remained fixed on my hand, which was stroking his hair.

“Then why were you sleeping in such a place?”

“I was asked to escort Madam by the Duke.”

“Duke Cassiar?”

It was the first time I had heard from Suu.

When did you decide to put me under escort?

Isn’t it true that the horses are tied to the guards so that they don’t run away?

“May I come in?”

Speak of the devil, he came.

Duke Cassiar knocked just in time.

The Duke walked in as soon as the door was opened.

“Did you give me an escort, Duke?”

“It seems both of you have already met.”

Duke Cassiar’s gaze shifted to Suu, then back to me.

“As I stated previously, being a duchess can put you in perilous situations.
As a result, I’m going to let Suu escort you from now on.”

With half-asleep eyes, I returned to Suu’s gaze.

He didn’t appear to be strong enough to escort anyone, no matter how I looked at him.

I felt compelled to accompany Suu just by looking at his doll-like and skinny body.

Furthermore, it was unsettling to believe that someone was always by my side.

“Duke, I do not need an escort.
It makes me uncomfortable to think that someone is following me around all day.”

“No need to worry about that.
Suu will escort you from a comfortable distance, so it will be no different than living alone unless there is an accident.”

Come to think of it, he suddenly appeared out of nowhere when Duke Cassiar vomited blood.

“Doesn’t Suu serve as the Duke’s escort? Who will protect the Duke’s safety if you give me the Duke’s escort?”

“Are you worried about my safety?”

Duke Cassar seemed unworried about it, as if I didn’t have to.

I forgot such a thing for a moment.

That Duke Cassiar was the world’s greatest villain.

He would not be harmed if he acted erratically and injured himself.

It was pointless to be concerned about it even when thinking about it.

However, I was not weak enough to be protected, even if I was an extra among the extras not even mentioned in the original.

“I have the power to defend myself, just as the Duke does.”

Is that so?”

He seemed to respond sincerely in his own way, but the Duke of Cassiar did not seem to believe me at all.

This made me regain my competitive edge.
It was unavoidable if things turned out this way.

I had no choice but to show my hidden skills.

“Suu, could I borrow your sword for a moment?”

Suu nodded his head at my question and gave me his own sword.

What? Why is this so heavy?

I thought it was light because Suu took it out with one hand without changing his expression, but it was so heavy that I could barely lift it with both hands.

“Are you going to quit now?”

I was a little embarrassed by the weight of the sword, but it didn’t stop me from showing my skills.

“Please get an apple ready, Duke.
You have to see it for yourself.”

I used to be interested in swordsmanship when I was younger, so I picked up a sword and practiced until I could compete with ordinary people, even though I wasn’t very good at it.

“Bring an apple for me, Fanny.”

Fanny brought the apples on Duke Cassiar’s orders.

“Now, what are you going to do with this?”

The Duke made me hold the apple.

“You shouldn’t be surprised.”

I threw an apple into the air.

And I swung the sword quickly.
Then the apple in the air was cut in half.

“How is it?”


Fanny, who was watching, cheered and clapped.

The Duke of Cassiar seemed a little surprised.

Did you see that?

I’m a sword-wielding woman!

Suu then picked up the shattered apple.

Are you going to challenge me? Please give it a shot.

Because the spot was not large enough, cutting the apple in half was difficult.

I could cut apples after a lot of practice, but how could I do it with such a weak body?

With a half-worried expression on my face, I handed the sword to Suu.

Suu’s face was disheveled as he threw up the shredded apple.

Something flashed before my eyes, and when I came to my senses, the shredded apple had been cut into equal-sized pieces.

With a serious expression on my face, I returned Duke Cassiar’s stare.

“You’re a capable knight who knows how to handle apples.
